Project MANA – Stella Foodie Event & Fundraiser

Project MANA – Stella Foodie Event & Fundraiser

  • August 8, 2016

It’s no secret that I am a “foodie” and that I proudly serve on the Board of Trustees for Project MANA. I don’t want my favorite food-related fundraising event of the year, Project MANA’s 3rd Annual Stella Foodie Event & Fundraiser, to be a secret either.

That’s why I am inviting you to join me at this delicious event on Tuesday, August 23 at Stella in the The Cedar House Sport Hotel, Truckee, to show your support for Project MANA. You’ll enjoy a terrific meal while supporting our community –  just take a look at the menu! I urge you to register today as this event always sells out!

As Lake Tahoe’s main local food pantry, Project MANA has been serving the needy, the ill, the elderly and children for 25 years now. Food distribution occurs four times weekly in North Lake Tahoe/Truckee region and totals nearly 2,500 meals weekly, 10,000 meals monthly, and 130,000 meals annually. Project MANA also offers other resources including weekly home deliveries for those in need that cannot get to distribution centers, and emergency and cooking compromised non-perishable food supplies. And each Fall they host the Let’s Talk Turkey food distribution that provides Thanksgiving meals to hundreds of local families.

This year, Project MANA’s 25th, brought big change – we moved our food distribution warehouse and some offices from Incline Village to Truckee. In doing so, Project MANA needs to raise additional funds this year, in the form of a capital campaign, to cover hard costs such as the move, the new warehouse space and necessary refrigeration, and to ensure there is no gap in services provided.

If you cannot attend the Stella event but would like to contribute to Project MANA, you can do so here.
